Hello kdrama fans~ it’s finally your turn!
1% of anything is no new drama i’m afraid. The graphics are not exactly in HD but the drama itself makes up plenty for that. This drama was aired in 2003 with Kim Jung Hwa and Kang Dong Won as the lead actress and lead actor respectively.
Here’s a short synopsis of the plot:
Kim Jung Hwa is a young and sincere middle school teacher, who has little interest in money. She is also extremely warm-hearted and loves to help other people. When she helps carry an elderly man’s belongings from the train to another location, the elderly man is extremely thankful. This grandfather turns out to be the extremely rich owner of a well known conglomerate. His grandson, Kang Dong Won is a quick-tempered businessman who rivals his grandfather, but in an almost comical way. In an order to “tame” his favorite grandson, the grandfather agrees to give his entire fortune to the person who marries Kim Jung Hwa, therefore forcing Kang to meet the girl whom his grandfather chose. Although at first Kim and Kang don’t get along because of Kang’s extremely cute but bad temper, their arguments bring them closer together. Kang starts to get jealous when Kim’s fellow teacher starts liking her too. Through the clever conditions that Kang’s grandfather makes, Kang starts a relationship he does not look forward too. However, what looked like a relationship that would 99% not work out, turns out to be the “perfect” match, the 1% chance.
Kim Dong Won is not the most good-looking man the drama world has seen but after watching one whole episode, you would start to find him cute in his own stubborn, hot-tempered ways and he wiggles into a spot in your heart. He’s on screen chemistry with KIm Jung Hwa is alright, but it gets better, making the plot seem all the more real. The show is filled with funny moments and the usual one or two sad moments ( but nothing too sad that can beat Stairway to Heaven).
The plot is not the most creativity one, (and a little bit unbelievable in the beginning) but sometimes, simplicity is the best when executed well. This drama has the right amount of episodes and the story moves along at a suitable pace making you just want to watch more. The actors and actresses are decent in portraying their characters. You might not exactly find in love with the couple, but you might fall in love with the drama as a whole. This is a drama before kdrama-dol times so don’t expect any pretty faces in this drama.
